Maps by Nuruddin Farah

"Maps" by Nuruddin Farah is a compelling novel that delves into the complex themes of identity, exile, and the search for belonging. Set in Somalia during a time of political turmoil, the story follows Askar, a young boy who is caught between conflicting cultural and political forces. As he grows older, Askar becomes increasingly aware of the divisions within his society and struggles to navigate the shifting landscapes of his own identity. Through vivid storytelling and rich character development, Farah explores the power of maps as both physical representations of territory and metaphorical symbols of personal and national boundaries.
